The Map which accompanies this edition of the Anabasis, is copied sub- 
stantially from that prefixed to " Travels in the Track of the Ten Thousand 
Greeks," by William F. Ainsworth, Surgeon to the late Euphrates Expedition, 
London, 1844. How well grounded are his claims for accuracy and fidelity, 
will appear from the following quotation from his preface to the above-men* 
tioned work : " The present illustrator of the Anabasis has by accident en- 
joyed advantages possessed by no other person, of following at intervals the 
whole line of this celebrated Expedition, from the plain of Caystrus, and the 
Cilician Gates, through Syria down the Euphrates, to the field of Cunaxa, and 
of again travelling in the line of the still more memorable retreat across the 
plains of Babylonia and Media by Larissa and Mes-Pylse, and thence through 
the well-defended passes of the Tigris and Kurdistan, to the cold elevated up- 
lands of Armenia, which were the scene of so many disasters and so much 
suffering to the Greeks. Then again from Trebizond westward he has visited 
on various parts of the coast of Asia Minor, localities to which an interest is 
given by the notices of the Athenian historian, independent of their own im- 
portance as ancient sites and colonies ; and where he has not been personally 
on that part of the route, as well as in the localities of the first assembling of 
the troops under Cyrus, the researches of W. J. Hamilton, Pococke, Arundel, 
and others, fully fill up the slight deficiencies which might otherwise occur. 
Indeed, out of a journey e valued by the historian at three thousand four hun- 
dred and sixty-five miles altogether, there is not above six hundred miles that 
the illustrator has not personally explored.'* 



PEEF AGE. 



This edition of Xenophon's Anabasis is chiefly based upon 
the text of L. Dindorf's larger edition, 1825. Whenever it 
differs from that, the variation is usually found in the notes at 
the latter end of the volume. The following are the editions 
to which the editor has had access in the correction of the 
text and in the preparation of the notes. 1. Hutchinson's, 
Glasgow, 1825, a work so well known to students as to need 
no passing remark. 2. Schneider's. 3. Bornemann's, Leip- 
zig, 1825, an excellent edition, especially as throwing light 
upon obscure and doubtful readings. 4. Dindorf's, Leipzig, 
1825, in which the text has been made perhaps as perfect as 
in any edition extant. 5. Poppo's, Leipzig, valuable among 
other things for the Index of Greek words based on Zeune's, 
but enlarged and improved. 6. Krilger's, Halle, containing 
brief but very valuable notes. 7. Belfour's, London, 1830. 
8. Long's, London, 1837, a beautiful edition, following the 
text of Dindorf, with the more important variations noted at 
the foot of the page. 

References to the Grammar of E. A. Sophocles -will be 
found at the bottom of each page of the text, as far as the end 
of the first book. To have continued them through the whole 
work, would have swelled the volume to an expensive size, 
and besides, they were principally designed to assist the stu- 
dent in acquiring habits of accuracy and research, by fre- 
quently introducing him to his grammar in the opening pages 
of his author, and not falsely to impress him with the idea 
that he is to make no references, solve no grammatical or 



vi PREFACE. 

lexical difficulties, save such as are presented to his notice by 
the editor. 

The Notes have been prepared with special reference to 
students in the earlier stages of their education, who cannot 
be expected to have at their command rare and expensive 
helps to elucidate the meaning of the author they are study- 
ing. Hence will be found explanations of idioms, unusual 
constructions, the use of moods, &c., which to a ripe scholar 
might seem superfluous, or which apparently might have been 
dismissed by a simple reference to some grammar or commen- 
tary, where the point is fully discussed and explained. But 
it may be asserted that, even when they have the means at 
their command, students seldom turn aside from the imme- 
diate duty of preparing themselves for recitation, to search 
out references and investigate idiomatic constructions. It 
will be seen, however, that after a given explanation has once 
been made, a similar word or construction, usually, is either 
passed by without comment, or simply referred to the note 
where the explanation has been previously given. In the 
preparation of the notes, much help has been derived from 
the labors of others, which I have aimed to acknowledge, al- 
though in some instances, through inadvertence or a desire of 
brevity, I may have omitted to do this. 

The references to Buttmann's and Matthise's Grammars are 
quite copious, inasmuch as the editor believes that these 
works have now quite an extensive circulation, and are in the 
hands of almost every teacher of the language. Equally 
copious references were originally made to Thiersch's and 
Host's Grammars, but were mostly suppressed from the behef 
that very few copies of those excellent works are in the pri- 
vate libraries of teachers and students. 

The punctuation is essentially that of Dindorf, carefully 
revised, however, by a comparison of the punctuation of Bor- 
nemann, Kruger, and Poppo. It may appear to some that 
too many of the usual points have been omitted. If the edi- 
tor has erred in this, it has been done with the approbation 
of some of the best classical scholars in this country, whom he 



PREFACE. Vii 

consulted in reference to the principles of punctuation, and 
with the example of eminent scholars abroad, whose recently 
published works have fewer points of punctuation than ap- 
peared in older editions. 

As it regards the geography of the places spoken of in the 
Anabasis, the editor has taken pains to avail himself of the 
best helps within his reach, yet he is far from claiming to 
have done more than partial justice to this most important 
task of the commentator. The geography of Western Asia, 
especially of those countries through which the Retreat was 
in part conducted, is so imperfect, that there is great difficulty 
in locating many places with accuracy. The facilities of ac- 
cess to those regions however are now so great, that they 
will doubtless soon be explored and their geographical sta- 
tistics more accurately defined, when, if it shall please the 
public to receive this my first offering to the cause of classi- 
cal literature with kindness and favor, so as to call for a 
second edition, I shall endeavor to prefix a map, to assist the 
student in tracing both the avd^aa-is and KaTd/3a<ns of the 
Greeks, and in locating the places referred to by the his- 
torian. 

I should do injustice to my feelings, were I to forbear 
acknowledging my obligations to Professors Felton of Har- 
vard University, Woolsey of Yale College, and Lewis and 
Johnson of the New York University, for many valuable sug- 
gestions in the plan of the work. Especially to Prof. Wool- 
sey and Dr. Robinson am I indebted, for the freely proffered 
use of their choice and extensive libraries, which placed with- 
in my reach many books that were of great use in preparing 
this edition.

PREFACE TO THE REVISED EDITION. 



The first edition of this Anabasis was published in 1843. 
Since that time about 35,000 copies have been printed and 
sold. The stereotype plates having become somewhat worn 
by this great number of impressions, it has been deemed ad- 
visable to recast them in the Porsonian type, and in a style 
corresponding to the editor's more recent classical editions. 
The notes having been thoroughly revised and pruned of re- 
dundancies and all irrelevancies, are enriched by copious ref- 
erences to the grammars of Sophocles, Crosby, Kuhner, and 
Hadl^. In addition to the references to Sophocles's gram- 
mar at the foot of the page and extending through the first 
book, copious references to their respective grammars, for 
that same portion of the text, have been made expressly for 
this edition by S. H. Taylor, LL.D. of Phillips Academy, 
Andover, Mass., and Prof. Hadley of Yale College. The 
book is thus rendered invaluable to all who wish to become 
well grounded in the elements of the Greek language. 

In order to promote uniformity, the same system of punc- 
tuation has been followed as in the other works of the editor, 
viz., to give to every oxytone standing before a punctuation- 
mark, whether in a Greek or English sentence, the acute 
accent.

SUMM AET. 



BOOK I. 



CHAP. • 

I. Cyrus the Younger is accused to his brother Artaxerxes of plotting 
against him, upon which he is apprehended, and obtains his hberty only 
at his mother's intercession. He returns to his satrapy, and secretly 
raises an army, part of which are Greeks, in order to make war against 
his brother. 
II. He sets out from Sardis, and marches through Lydia, Phrygia, and 
Lycaonia into Cappadocia, whence he enters Cilicia and finds it deserted 
by Syennesis, who is however at last induced by his wife to have an in- 
terview with Cyrus. 

in. The Greeks suspecting the real object of the enterprise, refuse 
to go any further; but by the prudence of Clearchus they consent 
to follow Cyrus, who says that the expedition is intended against Abro- 
comas. 

lY, The army passes the Pylse Syrise. Two of the Greek generals, 
Xenias and Pasion, having taken offence at Cyrus, desert the expedition. 
The magnanimity of Cyrus in not pursuing them, causes the army to fol- 
low him with great enthusiasm. They reach Thapsacus on the Euphra- 
tes, where Cyrus discloses the real design of the expedition ; but the 
army, by fresh promises and the craft of Menon, are induced to cross 
the river. 
Y. They pass through a desert country, having the Euphrates on their 
right. Many of the beasts of burden perish for want of fodder. While 
provisions are brought over from Carmande, a town on the opposite 
bank of the Euphrates, a quarrel arises between Clearchus and Menon, 
which is settled by a serious appeal from Cyrus. 

Yl. Orontes, a relative of Cyrus, is apprehended when on the point of 
deserting to the king. He is tried and condemned to death. 

Vll. Cyrus, supposing that the king would join battle the next day, re- 
views his army at midnight, and makes an encouraging speech to the 



X SUMMARY. 

CHAP. Greeks. The next day, with his army in order of battle, he passes a 
trench dug by the king, after which, thinking that his brother had given 
up all intention of fighting, he proceeds less cautiously. 

VIII. Suddenly and unexpectedly it is announced that the king's army is 
approaching in fine order, whereupon Cyrus and the Greek commanders 
hastily marshal their forces and prepare for battle. The Greeks, whose 
position is on the right wing, charge the enemy, and easily rout that 
part of the royal forces opposed to them. Cyrus, seeing the king in the 
centre, rashly attacks him and is slain. 
IX. The eulogy of Cyrus. 

X. The king takes and plunders the camp of Cyrus, but is repulsed from 
the Grecian camp. Joined by Tissaphernes, he proceeds against the 
main body of the Greeks, who again put his army to flight. The Greeks 
return to their camp. 



BOOK II. 

I. The Greeks hear with surprise and grief of the death of Cyrus. 
They ofier the throne of Persia to Ariseus, who declines it, and ex- 
presses his intention of returning forthwith to Ionia. The king sum- 
mons the Greeks to deliver up their arms. Finding them resolute and 
undismayed, the envoy, in the name of the king, offers them peace 
if they remain where they are, but threatens them with war in case 
they advance or retreat. They dismiss the messenger with a bold 
answer. 
II. The Greeks join Ariaeus, with whom they form a treaty, and take 
counsel in reference to their return. During the night following the 
first day's march, the army is seized with a panic, which Clearchus 
pleasantly allays. 

III. The next morning the king proposes a truce, and sends guides to 
conduct the Greeks where they can obtain provisions. A treaty is here 
concluded between the two parties, the terms of which are, that the Per- 
sians shall faithfully conduct the Greeks to their own country, furnishing 
them with provisions, which the Greeks are to buy, or procure from the 

, country through which they pass, without doing injury to it. 

IV. Mutual suspicion, which ripens into enmity, arises between the 
Greeks and Persians. The armies pass the Median wall and cross the 
Tigris. 

V. Having halted at the river Zabatus, Clearchus, in order to put an end 
to the suspicions, seeks an interview with Tissaphernes, at whose invita- 
tion he repairs the next day to the Persian camp, with four other gen- 
erals and twenty captains. At a given signal, the generals are made 



SUMHABY. • xi 

CHAP, prisoners, and the captains put to death. Ariseus then comes to the 
Greek camp, and in the king's name demands the surrender of their 
arms. The Greeks return a reproachful answer. 
yi. The character of the live generals. 



BOOK III. 

I. The Greeks are in great dejection. Xenophon, awakened from his 
slumbers by a remarkable dream, arouses first the captains of Proxenus, 
and then the generals and captains of the other divisions. At his sug- 
gestion, they elect new commanders in place of those who had been 
seized by Tissaphernes. 

n. A new council is held, at which, after speeches made by Chirisophus, 
Cleaner, and Xenophon, the order of march is resolved upon, and his 
post assigned to each commander. 

III. As the Greeks are about to commence their march, Mithridates, under 
the guise of friendship, comes to them, but soon shows that he is an en- 
emy, and they resolve for the future to enter into no negotiations with 
the Persian king. After the passage of the Zabatus, they are harassed 
by Mithridates, and suffer for the want of slingers and horsemen. By 
Xenophon's advice, men are enrolled for these services. 
lY. Mithridates again pursues the Greeks, but is easily repulsed. They 
reach the Tigris, after which they are attacked by Tissaphernes with a 
large army. The Greeks repulse him and then change their order of 
march. Passing over a mountainous country, they are harassed by the 
enemy, but getting possession of an eminence, commanding the one 
occupied by the Persians, they descend into the plain. 

Y. Having arrived at a point where the Carduchian mountains press 
close upon the river, and being still harassed by the enemy, the generals 
hold a consultation, and resolve to march over the mountains. 



BOOK IV- 

I. They enter the Carduchian territory, but suffer much from the wind 
and cold, and also from the assaults of the barbarians, by whom they are 
shut up in a valley. 
n. A prisoner is compelled to serve as a guide, who conducts a part of 
the army to an eminence, whence they disperse the barbarians, and thus 
enable the Greeks to leave the valley. 
ni. They arrive at the river Centrites, which, by a series of skilful ma- 



xii SUMMARY. 

CHAP, noeuvres, they cross in safety, and disperse the Persians, who are drawn 
up on the opposite bank to oppose their passage. 
lY. The Greelis enter Armenia, pass the sources of the Tigris, and reach 
the Teleboas. Here they make a treaty with Teribazus, the satrap of 
the province, whom they soon find to be insincere. 
V. In their march through the country, they sufier intensely from the 
cold, and deep snow, as well as from the want of food. At length they 
reach some Tillages well stored with provisions, where they remain 
seven days. 
VI. They set out from these villages with a guide, who, being struck by 
Chirisophus, deserts them. After wandering about for several days, 
they reach the river Phasis. Thence having marched two days, they 
arrive at a mountain occupied by the Phasiani, whom with much address 
and gallantry the Greeks dislodge. 

YII. Entering the country of the Taochi, the Greeks storm a fort, in which 
they find a great number of cattle, upon which they subsist while pass- 
ing through the country of the Chalybes. They cross the Harpasus, and 
march through the country of the Scythini to Gymnias, from which town 
a guide conducts them to Mount Teches, where they obtain a view of the 
sea. 

VIII. The Greeks having descended the mountain, and made a treaty 
with the Macrones, ascend the Colchian mountains, and rout the en- 
emy who are drawn up to oppose them. Thence they descend into 
well-furnished villages in the plain, and in two days reach Trapezus, 
a Grecian city on the Euxine Sea. 



BOOK Y. 

I. Chirisophus is sent to obtain ships from Anaxibius, the Spartan ad- 
miral. Xenophon, in the mean while, takes other measures to procure 
ships, in case the mission of Chirisophus should prove unsuccessful, and 
sees that the roads are well prepared for the army, should it be obliged 
to proceed by land. Dexippus betrays the trust reposed in him and de- 
serts the army. ' 

II. The Greeks being in want of provisions, Xenophon leads a foraging 
expedition against the Drilae. Destroying all their property in the fields, 
these people shut themselves up in their principal fort, which the Greeks, 
after meeting with a fierce resistance, take and burn. The next day 
they return to Trapezus. 

III. Embarking the camp-followers, invalids, and baggage, in the ships, 
the army commences its march towards Greece by land. At Cerasus, 
they divide the money raised from the sale of captives. The tenth part 



SUMMARY. xiii 

CHAP, is given to the generals to be kept for Apollo and Artemis of Ephesus. 
A short description of Scillus, the residence of Xenophon. 
lY. The Mossynoecians prohibit the Greeks from passing through their 
territory. An alhance is formed with a part of the Mossynoecians hostile 
to those opposing the Greeks. With these allies the Greeks force their 
way into the chief city, which is destroyed. The barbarous manners of 
the Mossynoecians described. 
V. The army passes through the country of the Chalybes, and arrive at 
Cotyora. Not being hospitably received, the Greeks subsist by plunder- 
ing the Paphlagonians and the territory of Cotyora. Of this the people 
of Sinope, through their ambassadors, complain, but are satisfied by the 
reply of Xenophon. 
VI. The Greeks are advised by these ambassadors to proceed by sea. 
The design of Xenophon to build a city in Pontus, is frustrated by the 
treachery of Silanus, to whom he had communicated it. 

VII. Xenophon defends himself from the charge of intending to sail to 
the Phasis, and accuses certain of the soldiers, who some time previous 
had insulted the ambassadors from Cerasus. 

Vni. The conduct and accounts of the generals being investigated, some 
are fined for delinquencies. Xenophon being accused of using severity 
towards the soldiers, admits the fact, but shows, in an eloquent speech^ 
that he was justified in the circumstances. 



BOOK VI. 

I. The ambassadors of the Paphlagonians, coming to negotiate a peace, 
are treated with a sumptuous banquet. Peace is concluded with them, 
after which the Greeks sail to Sinope. Here the army determines to 
choose a commander-in-chief, and elect Xenophon, but he declines the 
appointment, the omens he offered being unpropitious. Chirisophus is 
then chosen. 

II. The Greeks sail to Heraclea. At this place a dissension arises, which 
results in the division of the army into three parts, one composed of the 
Arcadians under their own leaders, the other two respectively under 
Chirisophus and Xenophon. 

m. At the port of Calpe, the Arcadians disembark, and making a preda- 
tory incursion against the Bithynians, are in imminent danger of destruc- 
tion, but are rescued by the timely arrival of Xenophon. They all return 
to Calpe and join Chirisophus. 

IV. The army pass a decree, that it shall be a capital ofience to propose 
another separation. Neon, contrary to the auguries, leads out two thou- 
sand men to forage, but is attacked by Pharnabazus, and retreats with 



Xiv SUMMARY. 

CHAP, the loss of five hundred men. He is brought back to the camp by 
Xenophon. 
V. The next day, Xenophon under favorable auspices leads out the 
troops, buries those who had been slain the day before, and puts to 
flight the enemy, who suddenly had shown themselves on a hill. 
yi. The army now finds plenty of booty, which they take in perfect 
security. Oleander, the Spartan harmostes of Byzantium, arrives, and 
by the intrigues of Dexippus is at first prejudiced against the Greeks, but 
is reconciled through the wise endeavors of Xenophon. The command 
of the army is offered to him, which he declines, the omens being un- 
favorable. The army reach Chrysopolis. 



BOOK VII. 

I. At the instance of Pharnabazus, who wishes to get the Greeks out 
of his territories, Anaxibius, the Spartan admiral, invites the army, by a 
false promise of pay, to cross over to Byzantium. Having been treach- 
erously excluded from the city by Anaxibius, the Greeks force their 
way in, but are appeased by Xenophon. Coeratades, a Theban, pro- 
poses himself to the army as their general, promising to conduct 
them into the Delta of Thrace, but soon resigns the office conferred 
upon him. 
II. Many of the soldiers now leave the army, while those who remain in 
Byzantium are sold as slaves by Aristarchus, the successor of Oleander. 
The Greeks wish to cross back into Asia, but are hindered by Aristar- 
chus. Xenophon repairs to Seuthes, a Thracian chief, who had invited 
the army to enter his service, to learn upon what terms he wishes to en- 
gage their services. 

III. The Greeks accept the offers of Seuthes, and proceed to his quarters, 
where they are hospitably entertained. 

IV, They march against his enemies, whose villages they burn, but are 
attacked in their quarters by some fugitives, who had pretended submis- 
sion, and thus spied out the situation of the camp. The barbarians are 
repulsed, and submit to Seuthes. 

V. Seuthes neglects to pay the army as he had promised, whereupon 
the Greeks cast the blame of the affair upon Xenophon. 

VI. Xenophon defends himself from certain charges and suspicions in re- 
spect to the pay withheld by Seuthes. He refuses to remain with Seu- 
thes, preferring to accompany the army into Asia, whither it is about to 
proceed to engage in the war with Tissaphernes. 

VII. The absurdity of the charge of Medosades, a Thracian, against Xeno- 
phon, is shown by him, upon which the Lacedaemonian deputies refuse to 



SUMMARY. XV 

CHAP, conduct the Greeks into Asia until Seuthes has paid them. Xenophon 
at last prevails on Seuthes to pay the wages due to the army. 

Yni. Xenophon himself receives no pay, and is so^ straitened as to be 
obliged to sell his horse to raise funds. He proceeds with the army to 
Pergamus, where he is hospitably received by Hellas the wife of Gongy- 
lus. By her advice he attacks the castle of Asidates. At first he is im- 
successful, but on the following day he takes Asidates prisoner, with 
his wife, children, and all his riches. He receives a large share of the 
booty, and delivers the army to Thimbron, to be incorporated with the 
forces levied against Tissaphernes,

Hystaspis. It appears from V. § 18, that 3000 darics==ten talents. A 
talent contained 60 minse or 6000 drachmss (c£ N. on 4. § 13), which would 
make a daric = twenty drachmae, or $3.5186, computing from the value of the 
old attic drachma (cf K on 4. § 13), and $3.3044, taking the later value of the 
drachma as the standard. Hussey (Ancient Weights, &c. YII. 3) estimates 
the daric as containing on an avarage about 123.7 grains of pure gold, and 
therefore — ^^'^'^^ of a sovereign, or about 1/. Is. lOd. 1.76 farthings =

others at 40, and others at SO stadia. Major Rennell estimates it at 2.78 
miles, and Ainsworth a little more than 3 English miles. Col. Chesney re- 
gards it as also a road measure, founded upon the rate of travel per hour, and 
varying with the nature of the country. Thus the route from Sardis to Thap- 
sacus is 853 geographical miles, which gives 2.608 miles to each of the 327 
parasangs. But from Thapsacus to the mounds of Muhammad, 36 miles from 
Babylon, the distance is 402 geographical miles, which, divided by the 208 
parasangs, will give 1.98 miles for each parasang. The mean of both is 2.294 
geographical miles. As it respects the koI before Suo, the general rule is that, 
if the smaller of two numbers stands first, the two are joined by /ca/; but if the 
greater precedes, the conjunction is omitted. So we say two and twenty^ or 

twenty-two. Here there is a deviation from this rule. Cf. Mt. § 140. rhu

that it has become a common epithet for whatever is winding or mazy. Its 

modern name is Mendere. irXe^pa, The irXe^poy = 100 ft. iirTJu

Olynthians were a people of Macedonia. It was probably to await the arrival 
of these forces, that Cyrus tarried so long at Colosse.

formerly its capital Paa-iXcia, an adj. from ^aciXeios, ov, here used as a 

subst. plur. for sing. irapddeicros. Dr. Robinson (Lex. N. T.) remarks, 

that "this word seems to have had its origin in the languages of Eastern Asia, 
and has the general signification, a garden planted with grass, herbs, trees, 
for ornament and for use, and is applied to the pleasure (gardens and parks 
with wild animals around the residences of the Persian monarchs and princes." 
That these paradises were frequently of great extent is evident from the fact 
that Cyrus reviewed his army in this one (cf. § 9), and in another (II. 4. § 16)

lished worship of Pan in Arcadia, it it probable that these games were institu- 
ted in honor of him. This is also confirmed by the fact, that these festivals, 
when introduced into Italy by Evander, were changed in name only (being 

called Lupercalia), and were still sacred to Pan. aycoya, contests^ games,

Phrygia, and according to Rennell due north of Celasnae, and must not be 
confounded with a place of the same name in Mysia. Cyrus seems to have 
passed through these cities so much out of his route, in order to take in provi 
sions and stores for his long march. Col. Chesney finds the reason for these 
two retrograde marches, in the necessity of rounding a difiicult portion of the

connected with the greater chain of Taurus on the N. E. side, or that towards 
Phrygia and Cappadocia, which he quitted at the Pylas Ciliciae. Hamilton

vias be allowed its force, it would appear otherwise. Strabo reckons it as a 
city of Lycaonia, but as the boundaries of these provinces were continually 
changing, it is probable that subsequent to the time of Xenophon, it became a 
city of Lycaonia. That it was a city of much repute is seen from Pliny's re- 
mark, urbs celeberrima Iconium. It was also very celebrated in the time of 

the Crusades. AvKaoviasy Lycaonia. This country lay S. E. of Phrygia,

traction of the ridge, a very short passage was afforded into the plain of Cili- 
cia. It will be seen that the marches between Iconium and Dana were very 
long. This may be accounted for, in his wish to be at the Pylae Cilicise in 
season to take advantage of the diversion, intended to be made in his favor by 
the fleet and the detachment of Menon. This desire to secure the co-operation 
of his fleet will account also for the long marches between the river Pyramus

the Cretans and Cilicians. The character of the Cappadocians is satirized in

analogous to the beautiful passage in Hom. II. 6 : 429-30, where Andromache, 
after alluding to the death of her father and seven brothers by the hand of 
Achilles, and to the grief consequent thereon, which finally brought her 
mother to the grave, says :

Uv chat rlfxios = oTi ri/jLios c^y c'lrju. The infinitive chat receives its po-

and is used here in the present, because the idea of continuance or frequent

the result of the battle at Cunaxa would have been far different. Xenophon

CHAPTER lY. 



2 J 3. at Thy ^dpov irora/jLoy, The river Sarus rises in Cappadocia, and 
flowing through Cilicia falls into the Cilician sea. It corresponds to the river 
now called Sihun, which Ains worth found by admeasurement to be 325 feet 
wide at Adana. The width indicates, as Col. Chesney remarks, that the pas- 
sage of the Sarus was effected near that city. As neither this river nor the 
Pyramus is fordable, the army must have crossed by some temporary bridge. 
See 2. § 5. The Pyramus {rhu UvpafjLOj/) is a larger and longer stream, nearly 

parallel with the Sarus and flowing into the Sinus Issicus. ^Icra-ovs. Is- 

sus lay on the N. E. side of the head of the Sinus Issicus, at the foot of the 
pass of Amanus, and north of the Pinarus, now the Dalichai or Mad River.

regard to this mountain-pass and the rivers and lakes of this region, has been 
attributed to various causes, the more probable of which is the conjecture of

embraced, Mesopotaynia, or the northern district of country between the Tigris 
and Euphrates (cf. N. on 4. § 19); Babylonia, comprising the narrow isthmus 
between those rivers, commencing on the north where the streams converge to 
about 20 miles of each other, and extending about 300 miles towards the Per- 
sian gulf; and the eastern district beyond the Tigris, called ^^i^r. It was 
where the Tigris and Euphrates were approaching so near to each other, that 
Cyrus was now marching. The fertility of this tract was so great, that Herod. 
(I. 193) says it commonly {rh irapdiTav) yielded of corn two hundred fold, and 
in remarkable seasons, three hundred fold. Here at different periods, rose, 
flourished, and fell, the celebrated cities, Nineveh, Babylon, Seleucia, Ctesi- 
phon, and Bagdad. The peculiar and advantageous situation of this region, 
as a great thoroughfare for the caravan trade between Eastern and Western

So Krlig., Pop., and Born. Some may have died on the march, others may

Cyrus stationed himself on the left wing. aurot, theg themselves, in distinc- 
tion from 01 S' «Wot (§ '7). yptX-fiv, i. e. he had no helmet on his head. 

That he wore a turban is evident from the nature of the case, as well as from 
the testimony of Ctesias (cf. Plut. Artax. 11), who says that in the battle his 
tiara fell off. This was probably the ridpa op^^j (cf. II. 5. § 23), upright tiara, 
an outward assumption of the royal dignity for which he was contending.

was worn by Homer's heroes along with the ^((bos (cf. II. 3 : 271), and was 
used on almost all occasions instead of a knife. So we find (lY. Y. § 16) that 
the Chalybes employed this weapon in cutting their enemies' throats ; and the 
Greeks (lY. 6. § 26), in cutting to pieces the bucklers which they had taken 
from the enemy. It is evident therefore that the /xdxaipa was of the 
hiife kind, and was used, as Yates remarks (Smith's Gr. and Rom. Antiq. 
p. 809), by the Greek horsemen, as a weapon of offence preferable to the long 
sword.

their arrival is described as taking place t^s 56tA.77s, which could not have been 
long after noon. In III. 4. § 34 ; lY. 2. § 1, it is apparent from the context 
that SeiA?; means the advanced part of the afternoon. So also in III. 3. § 11, 
where it is translated by some, i7i the evening. But as Butt. (Lexil. p. 218) 
remarks, Xenophon '^may have very fairly said of an army, which, after a 
march constantly interrupted by the enemy, reaches a certain point some- 
where about four o'clock where it intends to pass the night, that after march- 
ing the whole day it had advanced only two miles and a half, and had arrived 
in the afternoon at a certain point ; and as the context shows that the time 
meant was one drawing towards the evening, the word Set At? was quite suffi- 
cient to mark it." Kouioprhs {Kovia^ oppvfii), dust raised^ a cloud of dust.

have been so relatively, i. e. as it appeared to the excited Greeks, against whom 
such a cloud of war was slowly (cf. § 11 infra) and majestically approaching.

not be amiss to consider both meanings of the verb involved in the contem-

Greeks from being surrounded, had such been the intention of the king.. But 
doubtless nothing was farther from his thought than hemming in a body of 
men so formidable as the Greeks. His intention evidently was to gain a po-

any intimation of his future design, arc all sketched with life and spirit. We

much difficulty in determining satisfactorily to whom avdpda-i refers. The 
conjecture of Weiske, that it means the Greeks and Persians, who passed be- 
tween the two armies to arrange and ratify the truce, is inadmissible, because 
opposed to the facts of the case, the Persians alone passing between the 
armies as truce-makers. Nor can we adopt the surmise of Hacken cited by 
Poppo, that reference is had to those of the Greeks who would be sent out to 
purchase and bring in provisions, inasmuch as it appears from the latter part 
of the preceding section, that ail the Greeks were to be led whence they might 
take provisions. We must therefore conclude with Kriiger, that the ambassa-

so called, not from Media the country, but from Medea, the wife of the last

inhabitants of Babylonia from the incursions of the Medes. It did not run 
directly across the isthmus, but inclined from the Euphrates to the Tigris in a 
N. E. direction. Its length, according to Rennell, was about 24 British miles.

conceal his treacherous design, Tissaphernes seems to have marched in a north-

direction and passed within (i. e. on the side toward Babylon) the Median wall, 
as here related. Col. Chesney and others are of the opinion, that the army 
proceeded north-westerly to avoid the Hur or the marshes of Akka Kuf, until 
they reached a position so near to the Median wall that they might be said to 
be within it. But irapriX^ov avrov e'lcroj signifies they passed through^ and not

men bubbles up, and on the other side the oil of naphtha, for the two produc-

in the first moments of their surprise and consternation, had been attacked by 
the Persian cavalry, they most likely would have all shared the fate of their 
unfortunate generals. But their foes contented themselves with cutting off a 
few stragglers, and then reacted the vain farce (cf. 1. §§ 7-23) of demanding 
the arms of those whom they had not the courage to attack, even when de- 
prived of their principal leaders. But as Rennell truly observes, ^'villany

the justice of his punishment. He employed the arguynentum ad horninem, 
i. e. he granted that Clearchus, if guilty, had suffered justly, but argued that 
Proxenus and Menon being, as Ariaeus and his party said, in high honor, 
should be restored to their troops. This was a brief but unanswerable argu-

so great a number of Persians were slain, that in order to fulfil the vow, they 
were up to the time of Xenophon sacrificing 500 goats each year. Tho 
Athenians killed about 6000 Persians in the battle, and having pursued them 
to their ships, took seven vessels and set many others on fire. Many of the 
invaders lost their lives in their haste to get on board the ships, so that the 
whole number who perished in battle, in the burning ships, and in the sea, 
must have been very great.

reader will bear in mind that Xenophon is disposing of such objections as 
would naturally arise in the minds of the soldiers, in view of the untoward cir- 
cumstances in which they were placed. In answering these objections, he con- 
trives to substitute for each one a bright and glowing hope. This will be seen 
in his remarks respecting the defection of Ariaeus, the want of cavalry, 
market,' guides, etc. He now proceeds to dispose of a formidable objection, 

presented by the great rivers which lay between them and their country.

the cause of which being unknown to the inhabitants, was attributed to a cloud. 
Au illustration of the terror anciently inspired by eclipses, is furnished in the 
consternation of Nicias and his troops at an eclipse of the moon, when they 
were just ready to leave Syracuse. Zonaras relates, that Hannibal was terri- 
fied by an eclipse of the sun before the battle of Zama. For the manner in

to this question of the locality of Nineveh, I am indebted for the following note 
to the Rev. Dwight W. Marsh, whose long residence as a missionary of the 
American Board at Mosul, entitles his opinion to great weight. *'Wc can 
hardly limit the term Nineveh to the space within the seven-mile wall opposite 
Mosul. Her kings at times certainly resided in the i:)alaces of Nimrood twenty 
miles south, and of Khorsabad fifteen miles north. These three-walled inclo- 
sures were the strongholds. The Tigris defended the west. The detached 
mounds of Bahsheika, Karamlis, Karakosh and others on the east, seem to 
have been unquestionably designed to protect the whole diamond-shaped area, 
about thirty miles long, and in the centre nearly half as wide, but E^t larger

reach before the enemy, there is now a ferry and villages on either side of the

irphs rh Kdrco k. t. A. This passage has puzzled critics not a little. Hutch, 
reads irpo^alyoyrcs and interprets, ^^ nervos cum sagittas missuri essent^ ad 
imam arms partem adducehant^ sinistrum pedem projnoventes,'" But this po- 
sition is so usual for archers when about to discharge their arrows, that we 
can hardly suppose Xenophon would gravely tell his countrymen that such 

was the posture of the Carduchians. Besides, if irphs to^ou is connected 

with any thing in the sentence, it must be with irpoa-^alvovres, and not, as 
Hutch, and Belfour suppose, with ^XKkov ray pcvpds^ which seems to make no 
conceivable sense. The various solutions given to the passage, by Leun., 
Amas., Brod., Weiske, &c., are all unsatisfactory. Schneider's interpretation 
seems to be the best of any yet given, and is cited approvingly by Born., Pop., 
and Krlig. *^ Difficultatem omnem facile explicabit si mecum et cum inter- 
prete germanico, Halbkart, statuas arcum affixum fuisse fusti canaliculato, 
qualem medium sevum arcubalistam vocabat, unde Gallicum arbalete originem 
duxit, quod telum Armbrust appellare solemus. Ketinaculum retinet nervum 
summa cum vi tensum ; impulsum vero manu ejaculatur telum canali imposi- 
tum. Ita apparet quomodo nervus summa cum vi, pede sinistro arcui imo 
imposito, adductus retineri potuerit in arcu sublato." A very convenient way 
of fitting the arrow to the arbalist or cross-bow^ would be to place the left foot 
upon the bow where it was joined to the stock, and with both hands to draw 
the string home to the notch, at the head of the groove in which lay the arrow.

ent from the amentum or leather thong fastened to the lance. It was proba- 
bly, as its name imports, something crooked or curved, which was fixed to the 
middle of the shaft as a rest for the hand, when with the aid of the amentum 
it was about to launch the spear.

the country of the Carduchians from Armenia. It is now called Buhtan-chai. 
Layard thinks that the Greeks attempted to cross the river at Tilleh or Til, but, 
as Xenophon relates, found a more practicable ford higher up. Ainsworth 
finds the place where the first attempt was made to ford the river, higher up 
than Tilleh, where it is hemmed in by low hills, and the actual crossing-place

current, well deserves the epithet "pontem indignatus," applied to it, Yirg. 
^n. YIII. 728. Prof. Maiden (Class. Mus. Vol. III. p. 39) conjectures that 
the name of this river led the Greeks to suppose that it was the same as the 
Phasis of Colchis, and that they followed the course of the stream in the hope 
that it would lead them toward the Euxine, till, seeing that it continued to 
flow eastward, they resolved to try a more direct line. Ainsworth, admitting 
the correction along instead of to the river Phasis, which would reduce the 
number of marches between the Euphrates and the Phasis from fourteen to 
seven, thinks that the Greeks were rendered sensible of their mistake by com- 
ing to a large river flowing into the Arras from the north, at the same time 
that the supposed Phasis took a bend rather to the south of east. They would 
thus be induced, having crossed the Arras, to turn away from it and follow the 
new river northward to its sources.
